I am using trail version of robohelp2015, I have few issues when i open webhelp popups from the links in webpage in IE. It works fine in Chrome.
I click on help in on page, which opens a webhelp popup window. i don't close the popup and go to next page in my test website on now again click on help. Now it refreshes the webhelp popup with blank window in IE11.
Help would be appreciated.
The page is entirely blank without skin
The script i am using to open webhelp:
Also as i am quite new to robohelp, just wondering where should i change if I want my webhelp window on top whenever someone clicks help. Do i need to change in Robohelp_csh,js file or any other file.

Seems like the anchor tag has a typo. There should be only one '>' character for specifying the window name.
Anchor with '>>' instead of '>' makes the window more or like popup window. A '>' opens it as new tab.
There should be issue with Robohelp_csh.js script file and its functions.
I think its issue with this piece of code:
Have you previously seen the '>>' working in webhelp CSH output?
If yes, with which RoboHelp version?
Please also specify the version of IE you are using.
If i inferred the question ambiguously, just clarifying that '>>' not giving any sort of problem because i did also tested with '>' before posting the original question there would be same issue.
I was using RoboHelp 2015 trail version and It was on Internet Explorer 11. I did mention both in the question.
As of Robohelp_csh.js it states on top the below lines..

Hope the information i provided was helpful.
Update: when i checked the debugger Console in IE11 shows access denied error in whcsh_home.htm line 295
and for focus issue in chrome the developer tools shows Uncaught type error in whcsh_home.htm line 234
if(gbNav4 || gbSafari)
gsURL = sURL;
oNewWnd.focus(); //chrome error
Can your share your project with me over dropbox. My email address is rajpoot(at)adobe(dot)com
If it's not possible for you to share the complete project, can you zip and share the WebHelp output that is causing problems.
i don't use dropbox i can send you a zip file to email.
IE11 doesn't flag the gbIE5 variable used in Robohelp_csh.js file but it flags off gbNAV6 variable as navigator.appName() for IE11 returns netscape but not microsoft or msie unlike others.
As per my knowledge if in postWindowNSOpen() 'NS' stands for Netscape IE11 should supposed to go to that method only ( infact it should not goto peice of code where method is called).
Check the code in below files: <they may cause of error>
whcsh_home.htm between lines 217-250 and Robohelp_CSH.js between lines 119-160.
ZIP via email might not be feasible if the size is above more than a few megabytes.
If not dropbox, can you share the files over gdrive/onedrive or any other cloud file storage?
I would need to look at the actual output before I can make any comment on the problem.
its more or less 2mb so it wouldn't be any issues. i am just sending a test file with Web-help output with sample text.
You see the below locked thread in mean time for the error msgs in IE11 and Chrome <No focus error> when i debug the script:
I have not received any email.
Please make sure you send it to rajpoot(at)adobe(dot)com.
Did you check your spam folder, i sent it with my work email address which is hosted on a private server.
I sent it again.
I do see flags for IE11 being set in whver.js file netscape flags are also set for IE11 in the same file.
wetransfer.com works better than attachments. It's free and no
registration. I use it regularly to send stuff like this.
i will resend him with my personal email if he doesnt get it this time around. But i think i solved the blank page for IE11 issue. I need make sure once again checking with Microsoft Edge.
But Still the focus on help window issue is still pending on chrome and firefox.
I would be happy to give the piece of edited code where i made changes. It was test project for company to see if robohelp was feasible for the original project.
I did not received any email.
Have you completely resolved the issue on your own, or still need help?
i have solved a part of problem of displaying blank pages second time around in different browsers, but not the focusing issue: which happens in different browsers when user clicks help option second time around there is no focus on help window (if it is opened before) after loading the data. End user doesn't know whether page is refreshed or not in anyway unless he opens help window.
once you check the files i just gave you in chrome or Firefox you will exactly get an idea of what i am saying.
Could you also please look into the issue, it is simple as of now. As i solved blank pages problem and only focus issue remains.
Sorry for the delay in response.
I am currently looking into it. But it is going to take some more time.
I appreciate your patience.
thanks for the update Ankit. The only issue remaining is web-help window is not focused second time around which I mentioned in second response on top of thread.
I have the same problem. How can I solve it? What kind of update was used by PY563?
what problem your are having: the blank screen or focusing issue on webhelp window.
I didnt get a update in a sense like code patch or something, I was just thanking Ankit for the reply.
But i did solve the Blank window/Screen issue. I can help you with that..
I have the problem "blank window" and I'm looking forward to your help.
